Fodor's Review

It's not all about wine in Marlborough. Craft beers are a fast-growing trend, and here you get to sample from arguably the largest selection of craft beers and ciders on the South Island. The adjacent Malthouse building has been a brewery since 1858 and is now the epicenter of a local craft beer Renaissance. In this cheery beer garden hearty ales are matched with traditional German cuisine (bratwurst and braised pork knuckles), Italian pizza, and a good range of classic Kiwi fare (seafood chowder and beer-battered fish-and-chips). There's also a good kids' menu, and yes, a range of Marlborough wines. Music is often on tap.
